We've been to Copper Door several times and it has always been good. They have a very good menu selection and the beef is excellent. This is fine dining so the prices reflect that but if you want a good meal in a nice atmosphere in the Hiawassee/Hayesville area, you want the Copper Door. I would highly recommend reservations.

If you want great food and excellent service at a lovely restaurant, with a fantastic wine list - this is THE place! Don't know how it is possible that it's in Hayesville. Honestly, all plates are wonderful. Shrimp Kristine appetizer, the... More

Small mountain town restaurant delivers a big city upscale experience. This small warm cozy restaurant will surprise you in how elegantly you are treated. We enjoyed an outstanding meal with our steaks prepared to absolute perfection. I have eaten in many 4 and 5 star restaurants, nearly all enjoyable, and we've dined at the Copper Door several times before this... More

Hayesville, TN? The Copper Door is a wonderful place. The signature mushroom soup is great. The cod special even better. Mark, our server, plus all of his associates choreographed a terrific meal. If you are ever near Hayesville (SW Tenn.), stop by.

The atmosphere is really warm and cozy with a big fireplace. It has a cozy little bar. The service was fast and food was great. The server was a little dry with no personality. The lady at front door was very sweet and nice. I had the Salmon and it was cooked perfect. My friend had the shrimp pasta and... More

My husband, parents and I celebrated my 50th birthday over the weekend, which culminated with dinner at the Copper Door. It was our first time dining here, and every part of the meal, from our server, the wine, appetizers, entrees and desserts and coffee were wonderful. My husband and I just bought a home in Brasstown, and we are so... More

I have eaten here and always given this restaurant a 5 star. Today we did not eat here. Here is the story. It was a busy Monday night and we were waiting for our reservation. The 3 lady’s with us was enjoying looking through the glass at the kitchen while the chef and crew were rocking and rolling. The kitchen... More

What you witnessed was the grill cook bending down to wash his hands in a sanitizing bucket. We keep buckets of fresh sanitizing water at each station and since the grill guy can't easily get to a hand sink, his bucket is very useful. All of our kitchen staff are ServSafe trained and food safety is of utmost importance to... More

We had an excellent dinner on 2/11/17. They added the Valentine special on that Saturday as Tuesday was very booked. We enjoyed the Chateau for 2, which was cooked perfectly. Aztec chocolate for dessert was just the right amount for 2. Our server (sorry, can't recall her name) was excellent. Love this place. We've visited several times for special dinners.

This is a really nice upscale restaurant, the food was excellent. My wife and i shared the filet along with some side dishes. The filet was excellent, very tender and the mashed sweet potatoes was really good.
